This weekend, the Alexander Hamilton Awareness Society, in partnership with various organizations in New Jersey and New York City, is putting on a series of events honoring the 210th anniversary of Hamilton’s death.
The events are taking place in various parts of New Jersey and Manhattan and cover a wide variety of Hamilton topics. For more information on the events, go to the virtual flyer.
I will be speaking on Hamilton’s role in Rutgers v. Waddington, a case that laid the foundations for judicial review, changed the course of anti-Tory legislation in New York after the Revolution, and preserved the fragile Treaty of Paris of 1783. My talk is entitled “A Bar Fight” that Changed America: Alexander Hamilton, the Trespass Act, and the Case of Rutgers v. Waddington. It will take place this Saturday, July 12, at 10:30 a.m. at Hamilton Grange National Memorial (414 W. 141st Street). Come check it out if you are in the city! All the events should be informative and entertaining.
